Grilled Apple and Gruyere Sandwiches

This is my *current* favorite sandwich.

This last week I was snowed in for a few days. (By the way, this never happened to me in California. I'm just going to get that off my chest right now.) And inevitably I ran out of granny smith apples.

I only buy one or two at a time. I do not know why. They just seem so big.

After two days of being snowed in, with a small wedge of gruyere still staring up at me every time I opened the fridge (which was a lot, because, hey-snow days are for eating) I decided to face the icy roads for an apple.

I bought other things at the store too. Just so I wouldn't look like a total crazy face.

But I was there for the apple.

And when I got home I made of one these sandwiches. And the universe sighed its satisfaction.

Or maybe that was me.

Pretty cool life I have, huh? Don't be jealous now.

Oh, by the way… we (at Red Velvet) have a new website Just saying.

xo. Emma

Wowsers! Okay Ms. Emma…I think I’m vowing to boycott your blog for sure because you just post stuff that I would love to eat but A. I don’t have the ingredients and have to run to the store B. I’m too lazy to make posted amazingness. or C. It’s Monday and it’s the first day of my diet…Oh boy… Dilemmas. Dilemmas!

Yummy!! Just think how amazing this same combo would be in Puff Pastry.

oh those just look so good! i have to branch out and try other cheeses besides swiss and havarti! haha! February 8, 2011 at 10:00 pm

That could make my tummy happy. Are you a sandwich dipper? If so, do you have any suggestions?

I love grilled cheese and making interesting new combos – this sounds like a great idea, I can’t wait to try it out for myself soon! Thanks for sharing!

YUM! I made one with pears…do you use mayo as the fat to grill the sandwiches or just plain butter? I think mayo is a wonderful fat to use…
